ABA Lawyer Retreat - Vail, Co. - October 5, 2018

Do you or someone you know manage a law firm or practice?

Do you or they struggle dealing with competing deadlines, the stress of staying on top of changing technology or financial pressures?

Do you or someone you know suffer from malaise or reduced enthusiasm about your day to day practice?

Then make plans to attend the first of its kind ABA Lawyer Retreat in Vail, Colorado on October 5, 2018. This retreat is focused on seeing your work differently, taking into account the whole lawyer.  It applies to all lawyers, regardless of practice area.  Find more information or registration at www.abalawyerretreat.org.

The day provides experiential learning in an awesome setting that will leave you energized and reconnected to the aspirational reasons you went into law.  At the same time, it will give you substantive and practical tools that you can take back to your teams to show them the path to a more rewarding and impactful career. Sessions include:

  • Having difficult and crucial conversations that make a difference
  • Applying design thinking to transform the day to day tasks of legal service delivery
  • Leveraging emotional intelligence throughout your work
  • Improvising skills to effectively innovate

Throughout the day there will be opportunities to reflect and to connect with like-minded individuals. 

Most people I’ve talked to can point to one conference they attended that changed the trajectory of their personal or professional journeys. This may be the one for you.

Register today—hope to see you in Vail.
